Swiftwater Cliffs Discussion

Hi friend! Seems like a pretty sweet list. I love the wincon, and it's cool to see Lightning Bolt in a tron list.
I'm a little confused on why you're running 4 Mnemonic Wall over the 2 Ghostly Flicker/2 wall split you see in a lot of lists- Mnemonic is decent value, but at five mana, I'm not sure it has the same impact without having the option to flicker it. I'm also wondering if 4 Radiant Fountain is worth it in a three color tron list- I almost feel like a couple of those could be subbed out for a Rugged Highlands and a Swiftwater Cliffs, or some other combination of temur duals.
Another thought- what if you turned the Shimmering Grottos into Painted Bluffs, and jammed a couple copies of Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs? It'd give you a good early blocker, and potenitally speed up the burn wincon.
Good luck with the list!

Since this is EDH, you can’t have more than one copy of a card, so you can’t have 2 Highland Lake’s or 3 Swiftwater Cliffs in the same deck. Also, 32 lands is well below the average amount of lands for an EDH deck (average being around 36-38) but if it works then feel free to keep it.

Awesome muht1234, glad some of my suggestions helped.
Out of interest, which site does your group use to evaluate deck prices? Our budget pods used to use deckstats.net, but they've changed from a market price, to a checkout cart (price based on what's in inventory for sale). We were looking for somewhere else to value the decks but couldn't find anything so we opted to re-comply all our decks in the new deckstats.net pricing model.
The reason we don't use tappedout is because, even looking at your deck, it says $74.43 but that is excluding 7 cards, Firemind's Foresight, Goblin Electromancer, Mind's Desire, Swiftwater Cliffs, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Temporal Fissure, Volcanic Vision. Really silly IMHO.
Out of interest, your well under the $100 now Deckstats.net price on deckstats.net.
Don't know if you noticed, tappedout says your at 101 cards, you'll need to remove 1 to get down to 100 cards.
Also, since you don't have a budgetary issue anymore, I would add back Cyclonic Rift since it has quite high play value when overloaded, or add the Mystic Confluence back for the modular and draw. Will still be well under budget and get the benefits of the extra power as well.

I would also recommend going down the enchantments- if you ever get your dragons out, they will be enough. the enchantments just take up a bit of space.so if you want to win with dragons and nicol bolas, what you are going to have to do is stall the early game- easy ways to do this is kill their creatures, counter their threats, and since you have access to black, some budget discard ( Duress , Despise ) would actually be good for you, and still feel like a nicol bolas style play, haha.I would also trade out about half to two thirds of your basic lands for some of these: Akoum Refuge, Dismal Backwater, Swiftwater Cliffs, Jwar Isle Refuge, Bloodfell Caves.Reason being, you are three colors, and will have a hard time casting your spells in hand with whatever random lands you draw without fetches or mana fixing, these are budget options that will help, and have the wierd plus side of gaining you a little bit of life that might matter to get to the late game for dragons.
Young Pyromancer would be a great addition, only because its an early threat, that gives you value with your spells and will buy time to get to dragons and nicol bolas.I would say 6 discard spells, about 8 creature removal, 4 counterspells, both your board wipes, nicol bolas and about 15 creatures and 24 lands would be a fair deck if you balance the curve out.
BUTThis is your deck, have fun with it, build it play it and see what you need to do to alter it.
